I was convinced this was the height of insanity.

Then I saw the guys in the sidecars

Good God, that second one is nuts. If you don't know the course and what is coming you are just a greasy splotch.

This was my favorite old vid of this race, but I guess it is kind of sad because of a couple clips probably ended in deaths:

These videos really underscore why I have less than zero interest in going fast on a motorcycle. Give me 4 wheels and a metal cage, thank you very much!

IoM TT vids always make my eyes widen with fear - just looks unbelievably fast and scary. Then I remember that things always look way slower on video than they feel in person (videos of my trackdays and autocrosses always look slower than they feel). Gotta be nuts to do this!

Been watching it for 20 years. I still miss Joey. Will be riding twisties all this weekend. No car is as much fun to drive as a motorcycle is to ride.
And This weekend is Catalunya!

I sold my little bike but I agree. I only would go on casual rides, on rural highways and backroads along the river. I am a go relatively slow guy, but just riding a motorcycle casually to me is more fun than I have had in any car, as long as I can get away from the traffic.
